Wednesday night notes on new offers and more
- Let's start with the biggest piece of upcoming news for the Maroon and White recruiting efforts which would be the Saturday announcement of New Jersey DE Fadil Diggs. One of the top defenders on the entire east coast, Diggs looks set to choose essentially between Texas A&M, Florida, and Penn State this weekend. I do know that he spoke at length with Terry Price today, and Mike Elko was in town to see him yesterday. Strong Aggie vibes continue to emanate from this one. - Diggs' good friend and fellow DL offer Isaiah Raikes could be viewed in the same light as Fadil in terms of momentum. However, I don't think he'll be coming to a final decision as soon as Diggs. From talking to a source today, last week the feeling was that wherever Diggs chose on Saturday, Raikes would be soon to follow. However, it now looks like the 6-1, 320 pound space eater will take probably two more visits before making a final decision. I'd still call the Aggies more than a major player here. - Keep an eye on a pair of June weekends - the 7th-9th and the 21st-23rd. Those weekends look like they'll be chalk full of visitors. I know commit Josh Bankhead will be in town for his official visit (the only OV he's taking) on the 21st. That first weekend in June looks like it'll be Seth McGowan and Vito Tisdale if he's not off the board to Kentucky at that time. - A&M has offered a pair of DB's recently - one from east Texas and one more JUCO guy. I mentioned Tyler John Tyler product Kitan Crawford about a month ago as a player that had started drawing heavy interest from the coaching staff. The Ags offered yesterday, and Crawford told me tonight that he's working on a getting a visit date set. Crawford recently released a group of top schools that included Texas, Baylor, and Tennessee. The Longhorns are pretty much everyone's pick to land him at the moment. A&M will likely need to act quickly in order to keep him on the board. The other offer went out today to Hutchinson CC DB Art Green. He's a 6-2, 200 pound corner prospect with 18 offers from around the country - Arkansas, Georgia, Nebraska, Louisville, Tennessee, and South Carolina just to name a few. He's originally from Chesterfield, Missouri.- Lastly, the Aggies did indeed move in Longview QB Haynes King. Widely regarded as one of, if not the top signal callers in the class, King is a great fit for Jimbo Fisher's pro style scheme. He was fantastic in the Lobos' state title run last year and was the offensive MVP in the championship game. I've also heard he might be the fastest kid at Longview which speaks volumes to his athleticism. His dad is the head coach for the Lobos. After speaking to a couple of sources in east Texas, it's good that A&M finally jumped in the boat. Arkansas is a big threat here with Jeff Traylor's east Texas roots, but the Hogs will likely take Chandler Morris out of Highland Park. He's Chad Morris' son. King has family ties to Louisiana so LSU is a real threat, but the Tigers would have to cut ties with either TJ Finley or Max Johnson who are both committed to Ed O and company. I'm working to figure out if/when King will visit College Station.

A pair of 2020 out of state QB notes
I've been told by a source today that Texas A&M offensive coordinator Darrell Dickey will be flying to California early this week to see top 2020 QB prospect DJ Uiagalelei out of St John Bosco HS in Bellflower, CA. Uiagalelei is considered by most to be the top signal caller nationally in the junior class. The 6-4, 245 pounder recently released a top 7 that did not include the Aggies. Most folks believe Clemson and Oregon lead currently. Texas A&M has not extended an offer to DJ just yet, but I predict that will change. I have also been told that Uiagalelei is interested in the Aggie baseball program as well, and, should he visit, a stop at Olsen Field isn't out of the question. To say this is a mountain to climb still though would be an understatement. The Aggies would essentially be coming out of nowhere in this recruitment and would have to surpass a lot of schools that are well established in DJ's process. This thing gets interesting only if he comes to campus.Also, the Aggies continue to recruit LSU commit Max Johnson out of Oconee County HS in Georgia. The Tigers currently have in state QB TJ Finley committed, as well. It'll be interesting to see if A&M can get Johnson on campus maybe this summer.

Wednesday evening recruiting quick hitters
-As many of you saw on Twitter yesterday, Rischad Whitfield (the Footwork King) was in College Station today. I'm told he came by himself, but he did meet with various members of the A&M staff. -Despite the outword Oklahoma momentum with Jeffery Carter, both Jason and myself have heard he remains in contact with the Aggies. This one is see-sawing as much as any in the 2019 class. -The more folks I talk to, the more I get the sneaking suspicion that Katy Mayde Creek DE Marcus Stripling will make a decision prior to taking all of his official visits this fall. I'm also feeling better about him making it to campus this weekend. -Here's a 2020 out of state name to keep an eye on: Watkinsville (GA) QB Max Johnson. The son of former NFL QB Brad Johnson, Max is quickly making a name for himself as one of the top junior signal callers in America. He already holds an offer from Jimbo Fisher and company. Miami and Auburn are high on his current list, but it would not surprise me to see him make a trip to College Station this fall. Throw his name in there with in-state QB's Malik Hornsby and Ken Seals as guys getting a strong look from A&M. -Had a southeast Texas source tell me earlier today that he believes the Aggies are currently the team to beat for 2020 Newton DE James Sylvester. However, I was also told that whoever lands Tamauzia Brown and Darwin Barlow will hold a strong chance, as well.

TexAgs National Average Rating

The TexAgs National Average Rating is a proprietary formula that calculates an industry-wide aggregate rating for each recruiting prospect. The formula includes publicly listed grades, scores, ratings and rankings by national recruiting services, along with a TexAgs rating. Combining the data provides a rating for each prospect, which is then normalized to fit the TexAgs Rating 100-point scale.

The intent of this rating is to provide TexAgs readers with a comprehensive snapshot of how individual prospects rank nationally.

TexAgs Rating

The TexAgs Recruiting team of Billy Liucci, David Sandhop, Jason Howell, Ryan Brauninger and a host of recruiting interns attends more than 75 games each fall and observes and evaluates every major Texas A&M target, as well as most of the top 150 prospects in the State of Texas. From this evaluation the team draws a rating for each prospect on a scale between 70 and 100.

99-100: Elite national prospect (Five-star)

Considered one of the best prospects in the nation and a likely difference-maker at the collegiate level. Displays all of the physical skills to be a future All-American with potential to be an early-round NFL draft pick.

90-98: Elite state prospect (Four-star)

Considered one of the best 30-40 prospects in the state and a top 250 national prospect. Displays the physical skills to be a major early contributor at the collegiate level with high professional potential.

80-89: Quality prospect (Three-star)

Considered one of the best 100 prospects in the state and a top 500 national prospect. Displays the physical skills to develop into a contributor over the course of his college career. Has the ability to become a professional prospect over time with development.

70-79: Solid prospect (Two-star)

Considered one of the top 250 prospects in the state. Has the physical skills to be a potential contributor at a D-1 program over the course of his collegiate career with significant development. Professional potential is low.

Staff Predictions

The predictions represent which school each staff member believes will ultimately sign the recruit, and the confidence meter represents his level of certainty in that outcome.

Example #1

If the predicted school is Texas A&M and confidence is set to “High”, then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Texas A&M and I feel very certain about that.”

Example #2

If the predicted school is “Alabama” and confidence is set to “Low,” then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Alabama, but I’m not very certain about that.”
